Access control readers
The readers work seamlessly with existing infrastructure and are access control platform agnostic
BlueDiamond is an open platform, and the new line of cellphone-ready readers are among the most versatile access control readers on the market. The readers work seamlessly with existing infrastructure and are access control platform agnostic. They include support for the standard output protocols including Supervised F/2F (SF/2F), Wiegand, OSDP and OSDP V2.
The BlueDiamond platform supports a wide array of non-proprietary credentials with simultaneous support for a range of card technologies including standard proximity, HID iCLASS, MIFARE and DESFire EV1 and EV2. The new readers simplify the migration from less secure credential technology, such as traditional proximity cards, to more secure technology using the industry’s open standard, DESFire EV2 using 128-bit AES encryption.
Optimize building health
Upgrading a cellphone-ready reader to support BlueDiamond cellphone credentials is achieved through the purchase of a license and the recommissioning of a reader to support the software. No hardware changes are required. The BlueDiamond platform is part of the Carrier Healthy Buildings Program, designed to help protect people and assets, and to help optimize building health and efficiency.
